Join UK Opera Director Dr Everett McCorvey and UK Opera Coach Dr Tedrin Blair Lindsay for this once-in-a-lifetime 6 nights/7 days trip to Santa Fa to enjoy all five productions of the Santa Fe Opera Theatre’s 2020 season: The Barber of Seville, Rusalka, The Magic Flute, Tristan und Isolde as well as the highly anticipated World Premiere of M. Butterfly.
In addition to nightly opera attendance there will be an opportunity to visit Ghost Ranch, beloved home and inspirational landscape for many of Georgia O'Keeffe's artworks as well as a private tour of her studio/home in Abiquiu. Walk the historic neighborhoods on a guided tour of Santa Fe whilst sampling some of the famous flavors of New Mexico cuisine. Learn how to prepare some of the favorite local dishes. There will be docent-led tours of the New Mexico Museum of Art as well as the Folk Art Museum where there will be time to linger in their fabulous gift shop. An afternoon concert at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival will also be on the itinerary and much of one day will be spent luxuriating at the world famous Ten Thousand Waves spa. Additional landmarks such as the 17th century Palace of the Governors, Canyon Road, the Santa Fe Plaza and the Lorretto Chapel will also be included.
